    • Should You Move Out of State for a Better Job?

      Is it Worth It? You like where you live. Maybe you’ve already bought a house and your kids are enrolled in a great school. But you don’t like your job, the people you work with, your boss, or some combination of all three. You could also use a pay raise. You’ve tried searching for a different job locally, but nothing seems right. But then you hear about a great job opportunity. The problem? It’s in a totally different state. It can be hard to decide if a new job is worth moving for. Here are a few things to keep in mind before accepting that out-of-state job offer. What will you gain? The first thing you need to figure out are the benefits that moving offers. For instance, you’ll like your job more, you’ll work at a company with opportunities for advancement, you’ll get higher pay, etc. Consider neighborhoods and, if you have kids, school districts, too. It’s important to think about not only your career, but also your family …

    • Answering the Interview Question: What’s Your Most Impressive Accomplishment?

      How Do You Choose? This question differs from “tell me about yourself” in that the interviewer expects a specific, targeted response related to one specific project. Interviewers ask this question for two reasons: they want a better picture of your abilities, and they want to learn about you personally by seeing what you think is your biggest accomplishment. But it can be difficult to choose just one accomplishment, especially if you haven’t prepared a response ahead of time. Here’s how to make sure you’re ready for this question. Write (or type) your accomplishments out on paper. Regardless of where you are in your career, you’ve accomplished things. Write those things down. If you just graduated high school and don’t yet have on-the-job experience, include things like participating in sports teams or school clubs.  If you went to college, include final term papers, group projects, and internships. And if you’ve been in the workplace for a long time, take your top one or two projects from each job you’ve worked at …

    • Should You Quit a New Job?

      You thought you got your dream job but it turned out to be a nightmare. Can you quit? You researched a company and loved what you read. You get through the interview and learn about killer benefits, your own parking space, and free food on Fridays. When you get the job offer, it’s a no brainer—you say yes. But then the situation sours. Maybe it’s a poor relationship with your boss. Perhaps your coworkers loved the guy or gal you replaced and sort of resent you (that’s not the way Barry did it). Or you just get buried in work, have a cubicle in the basement (or workstation deep down the line), and kind of forget what sunlight looks like. Whatever the reason, it’s bad, and you want to quit. But can you do that without damaging your career? It depends. Ask yourself these questions. Is the problem fixable? Before you do anything else, try to figure out what you can do to make your situation better. If it’s a …
